Astrological forecast for May 2023
Pluto begins its retrograde motion in the sign of Aquarius on May 1
Pluto will retrograde until October 11, 2023.
During the period of its forward movement, Pluto will come back to the sign of Capricorn, where it will stay until January 21, 2024.
In Aquarius, Pluto brings our attention to the spirit of freedom, independence, and the ability to catch brand-new ideas and implement them with a group of like-minded people.
Here, Pluto unites people into new organisations, parties, unions, or associations.
It gives us an opportunity to have a new look at our lives and become a conductor of higher ideas without losing our responsibility, stability, and self-discipline.
Pluto will stay in Aquarius until June 11, then it will be back in Capricorn. Such a reciprocating movement of Pluto will combine the rules of the two planets, Uranus and Saturn, and set up our ability to show responsibility and a structural approach and discipline when implementing brand-new projects.
The Full Moon and Eclipse on May 5
At the time of the Full Moon, the Moon will be in Scorpio, and the Sun will be in Taurus.

When Mercury ends its retrograde motion, it makes it possible for us to start from scratch.

At the same time, Mercury in Taurus gives us a practical mind, a more realistic view of things, and a long memory. It allows us to make long and reliable contacts. It also brings some slowness in thinking and does not contribute to quick decision-making.
Jupiter transits into the sign of Taurus on May 16

This New Moon gives us a good connection between our conscious and subconscious parts and makes it possible to tune in to a higher perception of the surrounding reality.
Mars transits into the sign of Leo on May 20
Here, Mars gives us strength, pressure, bravery, determination, courage, and will. But at the same time, it increases our pride, selfishness, and arrogance.
